🥤🥳 “7-Eleven Day” Ditched for “Slurpee Day” Extravaganza: Here’s the Chilly Scoop! 🎉❄️
TL;DR: 😎 Tuesday’s no longer just 7-Eleven Day; it’s officially “Slurpee Day,” folks! Why the name change? Well, it’s all about the icy, brain-freeze inducing joy of the Slurpee, plus a company-wide unification move as celebrations occur across other brand banners too, including Speedway and Stripes. Get ready for the 🆓 slurpee – with a refreshing new flavor, Sprite Lymonade Legacy, up for grabs. And if you’re a loyalty program member, there’s a bonus slurpee on offer! 💯
Ready to take a dive into the refreshing, icy world of the Slurpee? 🥶 You betcha!
Ever get that insatiable craving for something sweet, icy and slurp-able on a sweltering summer’s day? Well, you’re not alone. Tuesday, July 11th, is now Slurpee Day – an upgrade from its previous identity as 7-Eleven Day – and we’re about to find out why. No, they haven’t been listening to our sweet-tooth cravings, unfortunately. 🤷🚀
The unofficial holiday, which celebrates the convenience store chain’s birthday (they’re turning a spry 96 this year! 🎂), is the brainchild of 7-Eleven, Speedway, and Stripes. The Slurpee – a beloved icy treat available in a gazillion flavors – is at the heart of the celebration. So what’s better than to name the day after it, right? That’s called a cool marketing play, dear readers! 📈❄️
The traditional way of marking this day of icy joy is by giving away a free small Slurpee to every person who saunters through the store doors on July 11. This year, to spice things up a bit, there’s an exclusive flavor in town: Sprite Lymonade Legacy! 🍋 Oh, did we mention that the day is also about beating the summer heat? Because, duh, Slurpees.
But wait, the good news doesn’t end there! Are you part of the loyalty program? If so, you’re in for a double delight. 🎁👏 Check your rewards account, and you’ll find a coupon for a second free Slurpee. Now, how often does a chance to gulp down two icy slurpees for free come along, huh? Almost never, we’d say!
Oh, a quick trip down memory lane: 7-Eleven first came into existence as an icehouse storefront back in 1927 in Dallas, Texas. It officially became “7-Eleven” after 1946. So now you know! 🧐🕰️
If you’re interested in bagging your free slurpee (who wouldn’t be, seriously?), find the closest 7-Eleven to you and prepare for the icy onslaught! ❄️📍
But this change does leave us pondering… How do you feel about the switch from 7-Eleven Day to Slurpee Day? Do you think Slurpees have enough of a cult following to warrant their own day? And more importantly, how many slurpees do you think you could realistically drink in a day without getting a mega brain freeze? 🤔💭🥤
